Top 10 Reasons to Volunteer in Israel.
10: Israel is Magnificent
One of the biggest misconceptions is that Israel is war torn and in ruins. Israel is an incredible forward thinking country. Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship in the world! When Golda Meir became prime minister of Israel in 1969, she was only the third woman elected to lead a country in the modern world. The Dead Sea is a must see (see what I did there) it is the lowest part of earth. People can easily float in the Dead Sea due to its unusually high salt concentration. It’s almost impossible to dive into it
9: Give back
as a volunteer you are giving something so valuable YOUR TIME! You get to make a difference in a community and be a part of something.
8: Meet incredible people
when you are placed on a kibbutz you will meet volunteers from all over the world, you live together, work together and learn together. These sorts of relationships are bonds you will have for a life time! An extra perk of making friends all over the world is going to visit them and have them show you around and the free accommodation.
7: The memories
You only get to live once, (yes I said it YOLO) but it’s true, make the most amazing memories and live your best life.
6: Gain a new perspective
sometimes living in your own bubble you forget what’s out there, volunteering gives you a new outlook on life. You often are placed in areas and industries you are not familiar with and you will always learn something new.
Have you been bitten by the travel bug, constantly find yourself dreaming of travelling? Just do it!
4: Learn a new culture
Israel is one of the oldest countries in the world as is referred to as the holy city. Israel has hundreds of museums for you to explore and educate yourself.
3: Looks great on your cv
This isn’t a gap in your cv where you are just bumming around the Mediterranean this is work, this is giving back, learning and experience. Employers look at this and see independence, commitment and passion.
2: Famous folks did it
